Yezdi Roadster, Scrambler and Adventure bikes launched: Price, features, specs
Yezdi is back and has marked its return with three new motorcycles in India. The motorcycles, which include Yezdi Adventure, Scrambler and Roadster, are aimed to target riders looking for regular commute as well as those willing to take off-beat roads. The price of the motorcycles start from ₹1.98 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to ₹2.19 lakh (ex-showroom).
Yezdi has opened bookings for all three motorcycles today and the bikes have started to reach dealerships across India. Yezdi said it will be sharing the same showrooms with Jawa, which have been remodelled as Jawa Yezdi showrooms for this purpose. The company will use 300 Jawa dealerships to sell the bikes.

Yezdi is the third brand revived for the Indian market by Classic Legends, a unit owned by Mahindra Group. Earlier it revived the Jawa and BSA Motorcycle brands. With these three motorcycles, Yezdi has made a comeback after a gap of 26 years. Launched for the first time in India back in 1961, the brand became popular with its offerings like Roadking, Monarch and Delux models. However, the two-wheeler manufacturer had stopped producing its bikes in 1996.
Anupam Thareja, Co-Founder of Classic Legends, said, “Being a motorcyclist myself, this is a moment of catharsis. As custodians of the brand, we made sure that we preserve and celebrate Yezdi’s and the Yezdi rider’s essence in these new avatars. I am sure every Yezdi lover, will feel that - designed with passion and indulgent beliefs, then engineered to purpose, to make you fall in love with this motorcycle and motorcycling, again!"
Speaking on the three new models, Ashish Joshi, CEO at Classic Legends, said, “The biggest challenge for us while developing the new Yezdi motorcycle(s) was to keep the spirit intact. We also knew that the motorcycle riders have evolved over the last few decades and followed a very focussed approach. What you see now are three motorcycles ‘purpose-built’ for rider requirements across the spectrum. We have always been about redefining the Modern Classic segment in the country and have gone ahead and did just that."
Here is a detailed look at what each of these bikes offer in terms of price, features, engines and other specifications.
Yezdi's cruiser bike Roadster may bring back the memory of the Roadking. With a neo-retro design style, the Yezdi Roadster has quite an imposing road presence. It comes with round LED headlights, taillights and dual exhaust. The rider console is digital encased in an LCD panel. It shows all necessary ride-related information like tripmeter, distance to empty, time, ABS mode and gear indicators.
The Roadster features dual cradle chassis. The weight of the bike is 184 kilos and the wheelbase is 1,440 mm. It has a ground clearance of 175 mm, which should be adequate for everyday ride in city conditions. Both wheels of the Roadster are tubeless. While the front wheel measure 18 inches, the rear one is 17 inches.
Yezdi has sourced the same 334cc engines that are used in Jawa motorcycles. The single cylinder liquid cooled unit on the Roadster is capable of generating output of 29.7 PS and 29 Nm of peak torque. The transmission job is handled by a 6-speed gearbox. The suspension job is handled by telescopic front forks and gas-charged twin rear shock absorbers with preload adjust.

Mated to a six-speed gearbox, the bike can churn out maximum power of 29.1 PS and 28.2 Nm of peak torque. The suspension is similar to what the Roadster has to offer.

The third in Yezdi's lineup is one that will attract adventurists. Yezdi Adventure offers more features and customisation options than the other two. Besides a LED headlight unit which comes wrapped in protective casing, the bike also gets LCD digital display for riders which can also adjusted by tilting for seated as well as ‘standing on the pegs’ riding postures. Yezdi says this feature is the first of its kind and will be offered as standard. The bike also gets turn-by-turn navigation as standard features.
Yezdi Adventure can also be paired with the brand's app through bluetooth. The app offers an array of features like search and locate destinations, relay turn-by-turn navigation on the display or relay navigation commentary on the intercom, records vehicle speed and engine RPM while on ride and averages of last trip when ride ends. The app also provides alerts and information like incoming calls and messages, missed calls, signal and battery strength. It also displays ownership details, with an option of adding multiple Yezdi Adventure motorcycles.
The Yezdi Adventure, which comes with dual cradle chassis, also features single side exhaust. The bike weighs 188 kilos, the most among the three motorcycles. It has a wheelbase of 1,465 mm and stands on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels. The ground clearance of the Yezdi Adventure is the highest among the three bikes at 220 mm.
The 334cc single cylinder 4 stroke liquid cooled DOHC engine, mated to a six-speed gearbox, can produce maximum power of 30.2 PS and 29.9 Nm of peak torque. The suspension job is handled by telescopic fork and coil spring at the front and mono shock absorbers with coil spring and linkage mechanism at the rear.
